Bhubaneswar, Mar 27:
Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik today ordered for a Crime Branch probe into the posting of pictures of over 100 students of Rama Devi (RD) Women’s University on Facebook with derogatory remarks.
The Chief Minister also directed the Crime Branch Special DG BK Sharma for strict action against those involved in the incident.
The probe order came after 40 girl students of RD Women’s University, Sailabala Women’s College and Kamala Nehru Women’s College, led by Biju Chhatra Janata Dal (BCJD) president Byomkesh Ray, met Patnaik at the Odisha Assembly demanding Crime Branch investigation into the matter.
Notably, photographs of over 100 students of the varsity were posted on Aarohi Creations’ Facebook page with objectionable caption “sex contest”.
Several girl students had filed a complaint with Saheed Nagar police against Aarohi Creations’ chief Sujit Sahu.
Police have recorded statements of some students under section 161 of the CrPC while making efforts to nab Sahu.
Sources said, a few days back under the garb of conducting a display picture competition among the students, Sahu had visited the varsity.
After a few days of Sahu’s visit to the varsity campus, pictures of several students were seen posted on social networking site Facebook with objectionable remarks against them.
